COACHES IN SHANGHAI TO GET NEW ‘HARD’ SKILLS

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 1, 2015 – Meryl Moritz, 21-year veteran of organizational coaching and Immediate Past Vice-Chair of the International Coach Federation (ICF) Board of Directors, will deliver a half-day workshop on October 24, 2015 to professional coaches, Human Resources and Learning and Development managers for the ICF-Shanghai chapter. The program is entitled What Makes Coaching Work? Presence, Partnership, Positivity.

The so-called ‘soft skills’ of interpersonal communication and relating have long taken a second-seat to ‘hard skills’ or technical skills. Many management science researchers now say that soft skills are the NEW hard skills. Coaches in China will get the opportunity to strengthen their value proposition to their organizations and to their clients in this upcoming workshop. Coaching demonstration, exercises and discussion will involve participants in the topic so they leave with a strong commitment to practice these three abilities. Cypress Garden Hotel Shanghai, No. 2558, yan an (w) Road, Shanghai, is the site for this event.

The ICF is a global association of 22,000+ professional coaches in 122 countries. It awards three levels of credentials (Associate, Professional, and Master) to coaches who demonstrate proficiency in coaching, subscribe to a code of ethical conduct, have been through coach- specific training at recognized institutes, and accrued hours of paid coaching as required by the desired level.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 1, 2015 – Meryl Moritz, visiting organizational coaching expert from the United States, will be the guest speaker for ZheDaoxing Enterprise Management Consulting Co. public workshop on October 24, 2015, “Measurement Makes a Difference: A Credible Approach to Justify Coaching Programs.” The workshop will take place at the Cypress Garden Hotel, No.2558, yan an (w) Road, Shanghai.

Coaching has gained significant momentum as a resource for workforce development. Experienced coaches and HR/Talent Development managers know that people who participate in coaching think it is a great experience. Still, budgets for coaching dry up and coaching programs get cancelled. Why? The participants themselves and the senior management could not see any real, financial impact to the organization. ROI is the ultimate measure of accountability: it answers the question “For every yuan invested in coaching, how many yuan were returned, above and beyond the investment?”

Meryl Moritz is a President of New York-based Meryl Moritz Resources LLC and a Master Certified Coach of the International Coach Federation. She has designed and measured coaching programs for dozens of organizations in her 21 years of practice as a professional coach. She teaches coaching at the University of Miami, Florida, to organizational managers of Human Resource, Learning and Development, and Talent Management functions, is an examiner for Columbia University in New York, and trains coaches for PEMI Shanghai’s NLP coaching program.
